While the New Orleans Saints are expected to have wide receivers Marques Colston and Lance Moore, who each exited last Sunday’s game with head injuries, when they take on the Atlanta Falcons tonight, they will be without six players, including wide receiver Courtney Roby. Colston and Moore did not appear on the team’s injury report this week despite leaving last weekend’s contest after suffering head injuries. This is a good sign for the team and means quarterback Drew Brees should have two of his top targets available tonight against the Falcons. Beyond Roby, who’s dealing with a shoulder injury, offensive linemen Charles Brown (knee) and Bryce Harris (knee), defensive linemen Tom Johnson (back) and Junior Galette (knee) and safety Isa Abdul-Quddus (concussion) are all listed as out against Atlanta.

QB Ranks – Week 13

QB Rankings Drew Brees and Matt Ryan are two of the top fantasy options at the quarterback position in week thirteen.
